    Default 4K HDR 60HZ HDMI switch

    Hey guys, so I need a HDMI switch that can handle 4K HDR 60HZ content, any one have recommendations on one I can get easily in SA? Found this list for stuff on Amazon (http://www.rightisbest.com/best-hdmi...azon-2017.html) but would obviously would prefer one that has a power supply that will work with SA plugs out the box.

    Let me know if you can recommend anything or somewhere in SA where I can find one.

    HD Cabling might be able to help you, I bought a normal HD switch from them before, this might be what you need:

    But they are helpful, so drop them a mail for more info.

    I recall several sellers having things on BidorBuy but not sure if they actually stocked them here.

    The question I would start with is WHY?

    Then I would also just say make absolutely sure it can also do HDR.

    @SauRoN My tv is an older model with only a single HDMI port that supports HDR, have an Xbox One X and recently got a PS4 pro so sharing a single HDMI port is my dilemma at the moment

  5. Saying Thanks:

    Default 4K HDR 60HZ HDMI switch

    I brought in a HDMI 4k hdr splitter (not switch) from Amazon last year. Was difficult finding a decent one. I looked for a switch at the time but couldn’t find anything that didn’t have a commercial price tag (at that time). I’m travelling atm but can post the brand when I’m back home tomorrow.

    The other thing you need to consider is the length of your HDMI cable, especially if you want it to carry hdr signal. If it’s less than 5m you should be fine (2m is safer) otherwise that’s another mission all on its own.

    Edit: Just read your setup. Cable length won’t be an issue for you I see.

    Nice find. This should work. I’ve dealt plenty with the HD Cabling guys. They’re awesome. They’ll refund you if it doesn’t work as well. I’ve refunded stuff I bought there before.

    I purchased this myself recently and works for 4K60 + hdr

    Had same problem with TV only having 1 port with all the features. Hooking my PC and PS4 both up through this atm.
